The standard by which all other mandolins are judged.

Gibson luthiers painstakingly handcraft the F-5 'The Fern' Mandolin to replicate the 1925 original notable for its abalone fern headstock inlay. It has a tuned parallel tone bar with a carved spruce top and maple back and sides to generate that world-famous tone. A sumptuous finish, hand-engraved gold-plated hardware, and triple binding all speak to its vintage pedigree. Includes Gibson hardshell case.


  • Carved solid spruce top
  • Carved solid AAA flamed maple back and sides
  • Bound extended ebony fretboard
  • Tuned parallel tone bar
  • Lacquer finish

The top of the mountain, the apex of mandolin design and building. Look no further, your search has ended. If you think you're ready, we have your forever instrument.
